About American Pasteurization
American Pasteurization Company (APC) is the first company in the United States to offer High Pressure Processing (HPP) on a commercial tolling basis to the food manufacturing industry. HPP kills bacteria that can cause spoilage and food-borne illness, and greatly extends shelf life. Applying HPP to foods and beverages – rather than heat pasteurization – results in products with a fresher taste and better appearance, texture and nutrition. HPP pasteurizes foods and beverages by uniformly applying extreme hydrostatic pressure around and throughout a food product, deactivating the cellular activities of foodborne pathogens and other spoilage organisms.
